TEXAS TECH VERNACULAR MUSIC CENTER
RANDAL BAYS
8:00 PM
Admission is free
An Evening of traditional Irish music on fiddle and guitar.
The Vernacular Music Center at Texas Tech University School of Music is proud to present an evening of traditional Irish music on fiddle and guitar by Randal Bays, a recognized master of the genre.
"A commanding presence on the fiddle." - The Irish Times
 
“His playing has power and passion... simply a joy to listen to.” 
- Dirty Linen Magazine
 
"a rare beast, a master of both the fiddle and the guitar."
- The Irish Examiner

Randal Bays is a self-taught US-born musician who's been playing Irish fiddle for more than thirty years; he's now widely recognized as a master of that complex, ancient art, in particular the traditional styles of Co. Clare and Co. Galway. He's "among the best Irish style fiddlers of his generation," according to Fiddler Magazine.
Randal has toured and recorded with many of the great Irish musicians of the day, including James Keane and Daithi Sproule (in the band FINGAL), James Kelly, Martin Hayes, Michéal O'Domhnaill and many more. He also has a string of great independent recordings to his credit, including his live CD "House to House" (with Roger Landes), which was picked by the Irish Times as one of the "top five traditional recordings of 2005."
Randal Bays is also famed as a fingerstyle guitarist, having recorded two seminal albums with Irish fiddler Martin Hayes, also with contributions to the “Masters of the Irish Guitar” CD on Shanachie Records. Randal recently released his first album of solo guitar work, “Oyster Light”.
Randal has performed all over the US, Europe and Canada, and is in great demand as a teacher of Irish fiddle. He co-founded and served for ten years as Artistic Director of the Friday Harbor Irish Music Week, and is now Program Director of the Cascadia Irish Music Week on Whidey Island, Washington.

ANARTICA-PIONEERING AMERICAN EXPLORATIONS OF THE FROZEN CONTINENT  January 30-December  20, 2015  (new exhibit)
Main Gallery, Gallery 6 and Balcony

Battling roaring winds, freezing temperatures, and crevasses, F. Alton Wade, joined the Second Byrd Expedition to Antarctica in 1933. He was appointed lead geologist for the Eastern Sledge Party, a 77 day sled journey into the unknown of Marie Byrd Land.
In 1939, Wade, returned to the icy frontier as Senior Scientist for the United States Antarctic Service to plan and manage the expedition’s scientific program as well as command the cutting-edge Snow Cruiser, a mobile research lab equipped with an airplane on its roof. Wade came to Texas Tech University in 1954 serving as Chair of the Department of Geosciences and leading 6 Texas Tech Antarctic expeditions. Wade was also a member of the first group of professors to be awarded as a Horn Professor. In 1971, he created the Antarctic Research Center at the Museum of Texas Tech University to further advance the discoveries of the Texas Tech expeditions that are detailed in this year’s featured Horn Professor exhibition, “Antarctica – Pioneering American Explorations of the Frozen Continent,” a new exhibit running Jan. 30 – Dec. 20 at the Museum of Texas Tech University.
The exhibit highlights nearly 100 objects from the collections of the Museum of Texas Tech University, said Tabitha Schmidt, interim director for the Museum. Attendees can learn why it took 200 years before large sections of the Antarctic interior could be explored. Penguins, sled dogs, fossils of ancient animals, and a mummified seal tell the story of how this seemingly inhospitable landscape, 98 percent covered in snow and ice, has evolved and always teemed with life.
“Not only will you be able to trace the steps of Antarctic exploration, you can see how you would measure up to a life-sized cutout of an Emperor penguin, interact with games that test your knowledge of Antarctic exploration, learn about the Frozen Continent’s prehistoric tropical past, and see what parts of an actual exploration campsite would have looked like,” Schmidt said. “The exhibition also features a large mock glacier in the main gallery that contains a continuous mural depicting Antarctic scenery. These are experiences you will not want to miss.”
 

IN ADDITION TWO:  EMBARCING DIGITAL TECHNOLOGY

An “Up from the Basement” exhibition.  During the last year over 1000 artworks were added to the Museum’s collections. The works on exhibit represent just a small fraction of the prints, drawings, and paintings recently acquired.

THROUGH THE LENS OF BILL WEAKS 
November 2014-June 2015
Bill Weaks bought his first camera as a senior at Plainview High School. After selling a few photographs he realized the potential of turning his hobby into a profitable business. Photography quickly became his life’s work and he opened Bill Weaks’ Photography on September 4, 1955. Though based in Plainview, he also worked in Amarillo, Lubbock, Dallas and El Paso, photographing weddings and community events. He produced portraits of many brides who purchased their gowns at Margaret’s specialty shop or Hemphill-Wells department store in Lubbock. For thirty years, Weaks taught courses for the Professional Photographers of America, and received awards and recognition on a national level.
On display are Bill Weaks’ photos of brides from 1949-1982 along with photos of the community during that time period. The Southwest Collection/Special Collections Library is pleased to present this collection for the use of scholars and researchers.

THE TEXAS TECH DAIRY BARN:  A RESILIENT SYMBOL OF WEST TEXAS
October 2014-March 2015
The Texas Technological College Dairy Barn was constructed during 1926-27 and served as a teaching facility for 40 years.  The original facility was equipped to sanitarily produce whole milk and cream. The Department of Dairy Manufacturers was able to extend the milking room at the south end of the building due to proceeds from its sales and added butter, ice cream and cheese to its product line.
When the new college opened, agriculture students were allowed to bring their dairy cattle to reside in the barn.  The money earned by selling the milk to others and by working in the dairy facility helped pay for these students’ education.
The National Park Service approved of the barn's registry into the National Register of Historic places on April 2, 1992.  The Dairy Barn remains quite arguably one of the most recognized and beloved of all the buildings on the Texas Tech campus.

ROBERT E. HOWARD, CREATOR OF CONAN THE BARBARIAN
August 14, 2014 – February 1, 2015  *ends Sunday*
A writer of short fiction, Robert E. Howard would find readers in his hometown of Cross Plains, Texas as well as across the globe. Known primarily as the author of Conan the Barbarian, Howard wished most to be known as an author of historical fiction. His better-paying fantasy and high adventure fiction would overshadow that ambition. His writings span oil articles for the Cross Plains Review, correspondence with the likes of H. P. Lovecraft, and fictions—western, boxing, pulp, and, yes, sword & sorcery.
The Southwest Collection holdings include a comprehensive selection of his books, physical & digitized copies of his hometown newspaper, serials, and a growing collection of memorabilia from the annual Robert E. Howard Days in Cross Plains. His work is still represented in Hollywood films, comic books, podcasts, blogs, as well as both fan and research-based societies. This exhibit hopes to capture his diverse legacy
DR. SHERMAN VINOGRAD-MEDICAL SCIENCE DIRECTOR AT NASA
May 2014-September 2015
During the eighteen years that Dr. Vinograd served as NASA’s Director of Medical Science he led medical engineering and vehicle development research relating to manned space flight. Among his many accomplishments was the establishment of the in-flight Medial Experiments Program, which evaluated human responses to extended space flight in preparation for the Mercury, Gemini, Apollo, and Skylab manned space flight programs. His greatest achievement was conceptualizing, establishing, and chairing the Space Medicine Advisory Group (SPAMAG), which was charged with defining the earth-based and space-based research and life-support requirements for a manned orbiting research laboratory. This group proposed an orbiting laboratory designed according to the needs of future human flight crews which resulted in the creation of Skylab. Now on display at the Southwest Collection/Special Collections Library through September 2015, is an exhibit containing books, photographs, artifacts, and medical and scientific reports. More information on this topic can be found in the Sherman P. Vinograd Papers.

Bedroom Stories: A Collective Reimagining is a collaborative, site-specific installation that combines found and constructed objects in an attempt to recreate the environment of a familiar childhood bedroom. The artists explore personal and shared histories within the context of a fabricated space that represents the microcosmic universe of the childhood bedroom. Bedroom Stories contains an element of performance as well as artists will place and arrange found photos in a perceived chronological order on a series of clotheslines hung within the exhibition space during the First Friday Art Trail reception. This performance reconstructs disparate personal histories on the shifting timelines of the clotheslines. Viewers are encouraged to move throughout the installation and create unique narratives for Bedtime Stories infused with individual experience and personal memories.

Texas Tech Professor’s Antarctic Expedition Featured in Museum’s
‘Antarctica – Pioneering American Explorations of the Frozen Continent’
 This “Up from the Basement” exhibition runs Jan. 30 – Dec. 20 at the Museum of Texas Tech University
 
Battling roaring winds, freezing temperatures, and crevasses, F. Alton Wade, joined the Second Byrd Expedition to Antarctica in 1933. He was appointed lead geologist for the Eastern Sledge Party, a 77 day sled journey into the unknown of Marie Byrd Land.
 
In 1939, Wade, returned to the icy frontier as Senior Scientist for the United States Antarctic Service to plan and manage the expedition’s scientific program as well as command the cutting-edge Snow Cruiser, a mobile research lab equipped with an airplane on its roof. Wade came to Texas Tech University in 1954 serving as Chair of the Department of Geosciences and leading 6 Texas Tech Antarctic expeditions. Wade was also a member of the first group of professors to be awarded as a Horn Professor. In 1971, he created the Antarctic Research Center at the Museum of Texas Tech University to further advance the discoveries of the Texas Tech expeditions that are detailed in this year’s featured Horn Professor exhibition, “Antarctica – Pioneering American Explorations of the Frozen Continent,” a new exhibit running Jan. 30 – Dec. 20 at the Museum of Texas Tech University.
 
The exhibit highlights nearly 100 objects from the collections of the Museum of Texas Tech University, said Tabitha Schmidt, interim director for the Museum. Attendees can learn why it took 200 years before large sections of the Antarctic interior could be explored. Penguins, sled dogs, fossils of ancient animals, and a mummified seal tell the story of how this seemingly inhospitable landscape, 98 percent covered in snow and ice, has evolved and always teemed with life.
 
“Not only will you be able to trace the steps of Antarctic exploration, you can see how you would measure up to a life-sized cutout of an Emperor penguin, interact with games that test your knowledge of Antarctic exploration, learn about the Frozen Continent’s prehistoric tropical past, and see what parts of an actual exploration campsite would have looked like,” Schmidt said. “The exhibition also features a large mock glacier in the main gallery that contains a continuous mural depicting Antarctic scenery. These are experiences you will not want to miss.”

At the Science Spectrum:

Arrr…Ye Ready for Family Fun this Spring?
 
Pirates & Treasure!
 
February 14th to May 25th, 2015
 
at the Science Spectrum & OMNI Theater.
 
"There is something in a treasure that fastens upon a man's mind...
He will never forget it..."
                                          - Nostromo (from Nostromo by Joseph Conrad)
 
Treasure is a word that stirs the imagination of everyone, of every age. An educational and entertaining exhibit for museums and science/technology centers, Pirates & Treasure! explores the history of treasures and treasure hunting, the technology employed in hunting treasure, as well as the people and personalities that hunt for treasure—including you!
What is treasure? Who hunts for treasure? Why do they hunt treasure? How do people hunt for treasure? What do you treasure? Explore these questions and take part in your own treasure hunt when you visit Pirates & Treasure!
Pirates & Treasure! has several thematic areas and hands-on activities that allow you to try tools of treasure hunting and investigate treasures.  Discover the life and times of pirates on the High Seas, from “Black Bart” and “Blackbeard” to “Long Ben”, learn why these pirate legends are still romanticized today.  Special exhibit features include actual artifacts from shipwrecks and other treasure sites. Visitors are invited to go on a treasure hunt in the exhibit to locate the special treasure chest.
THEMATIC AREAS OF PIRATES & TREASURE!
Underwater Treasure — Sunken treasure, lost aboard ships that never arrived at their destinations, has long been the object of pursuit for treasure hunters. This part of the exhibit examines who are these hunters, what tools do they use to locate treasure, and what do they find. Actual shipwreck artifacts are part of this module. Activities include a Remote Operated Vehicle.
Buried Treasure — Pirate booty, the Knights Templar, and hoards of gold are popular themes in treasure lore and some of it really exists. How do people hunt for buried treasure? What do they find? These topics are explored in the buried treasure area.
Metal Detecting — Throughout Pirates & Treasure!, the tools and technology of treasure hunting are explored. Visitors can experiment with metal detectors and see how they work in this part of the exhibit that bridges Buried Treasure and the Modern Treasure Hunt.
Gold Rushes — The gold rushes of the 19th century are slipping further into history but their impact remains in many parts of the North America. This part of the exhibit brings the hunt for gold to your visitors with an actual gold panning activity. Biographical sketches, timelines, and maps put the gold rushes in context. Visitors are also invited to be worth their weight in gold with our special scale.
Treasures in the Attic — Bringing the treasure closer to home, the attic module shows visitors how to find treasures in everyday objects. Family heirlooms and even long-lost toys may hold hidden value. Treasure hunting is often thought of as someone else's activity, but most of us pursue our own version of treasure in one way or another. The attic invites people to consider, what do YOU treasure?
Treasure in Popular Culture — Treasure is one of the most popular themes across cultures. Games, books, movies, TV shows are full of treasure stories. Even breakfast cereal and license plates have been touched by our thirst for the adventure of treasure hunting. This thematic area will be split between the Attic and the Introductory area in some venues.
The Modern Treasure Hunt — Contemporary treasure hunting employs exciting technology, like metal detectors. In this area, visitors will consider the various ways that people find their way (maps, compasses, landmarks) and other tools of navigation, including the Global Positioning System.
Geocaching — This family-friendly outdoor activity first appeared in 2001 and now boasts hundreds of thousands of enthusiasts. Using GPS receivers, players hide and seek 'treasure' purely for fun. Visitors will do an indoor version of geocaching in this part of the exhibit.
Protecting Treasure — To what extremes will people go to protect treasure—or to steal it? Visitors try their hand at opening a safe in this area, which only appears in larger showings of the exhibit!
Kids Cove - The exhibit will also feature a pirate ship play structure for kids including a captain’s wheel, telescopes, a real firing air cannon, a craft area and puppet theater.
 
Critter Hut - Visit the Critter Hut to see exotic tropical species including crocodiles, boa constrictors, macaws, and poison dart frogs, hissing cockroaches, scorpions and more.
 
 
Discover the riches of Pirates & Treasure!, a traveling exhibit.  It’s only here until through the Spring, so don’t miss Yerrr… chance to dig up the treasures of history!
